Digital Scans

UTSA Libraries Special Collections is pleased to provide reproductions of our textual, visual and audio materials, when such reproductions will not damage the original, violate copyright, or violate any restrictions imposed by the donor. Special Collections provides copies of materials to facilitate private study, scholarship, or research. We welcome you to use materials in our collections that are in the public domain and to make fair use of copyrighted materials as defined by copyright law. We ask that you please cite us. For additional information, please see our full fee schedule and read through our statement on copyright and use.

Digital Scan Request

Please note that in some cases we may not be able to scan due to the fragile condition of a book, page or image. The condition of the item is determined by staff.

Items are scanned at 300 PPI unless otherwise specified on your order form.

Delivery through email and RowdySpace is available in most cases. Patrons may provide their own storage media (CD, DVD or USB flash drive); otherwise, media will be provided.

The reproduction and use fees charged by Special Collections are dedicated to the ongoing access and preservation of its holdings. For large projects, please contact us for pricing
